THE Edinburgh section headquarters of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service has undergone a remodelling, to make it much more efficient and capable of housing an upcoming fire services museum.
The work – carried out by architects, Smith Scott Mullan Associates, with main contractor, Robertson Group – has seen what was previously a “miss-mash” of spaces turned into something much more ordered and connected.
Says a media announcement issued by the architects, here: “The appearance and energy performance of the building have been completely transformed by replacing the external envelope. The building now makes a positive contribution to the streetscape, whilst the retention of the existing concrete frame has saved 150,000kg of carbon dioxide compared to demolition.”
